I was losing a lot of cannabis products due to theftâ€¦ Here was the snag, I didn’t guess if it was buyers or budtenders doing the stealing tooâ€¦ I put up cameras & still could not catch anyone in the act.
I finally called a marijuana consulting service to help me out.
I needed someone with expertise of cannabis, dispensaries & the inner workings to supply the problem another look around, however the cannabis consultant immediately told me the store wasn’t laid out constantly. Apparently our shelving units were tall & bulky. They were perfect for concealing someone who wanted to steal off the shelves. The cannabis consultant showed me that there were clogged areas from the cameras that was where all our theft was happening. After decreasing the shelving units with lower, all glass 1s, I was in business. I also had a more open store. The venue looked bigger & more inviting. It was easier to browse. The cameras were sited in other areas rather than just the corners of the store. The cannabis consultant even put 1 behind the money register & right by the front door. The last step the marijuana business consultant did was hire a security guard for the front. I haven’t had any trouble with stealing since that day. The marijauna consultant paid for themselves by stopping all the missing inventory. The store is doing better due to the modern design as well. I never would have thought to change things around prefer they did. I even prefer having a security guard for added protection.
